Health Cafe, New Friends Colony, Delhi

Finally my ardent desire to visit the famed Hwealth Cafe has come to fruition. I am becoming health conscious day by day and I prefer not to feel guilty while eating out.

The vibrantly hued cafe will be a treat to your eyes with green interiors, potted plants, foosball table and ludo spread.

Strawberry blueberry shake: Slightly sweet, slightly sour, this pleasant tasting shake is a perfect healthy accompaniment to your salads.

Chocolate peanut butter shake: Forget healthy, I am more concerned about the decadence of this shake. The rich warm chocolate perfectly blends with the sweet salty peanut butter thereby giving a shake with a plethora of flavours.

Corn nachos with hummus, Peri Peri dip and pesto dip: The deafening crunch while you bite into this will keep you addicted and the freshly prepared dips won’t let you stop.

Pan tossed masala cottage cheese fingers: The usual cottage cheese is getting monotonous and the healthy versions available today are sometimes nauseatic. But the chefs at the Hwealth Cafe know perfectly well how to make paneer appetizing as well as healthy. The cottage cheese cuboids are lightly grilled and are topped with a subtle barbeque sauce with hints of black pepper providing the necessary zing.

Baked egg white in mushroom veloutte sauce: No yellows and hence, I do not gave to feel guilty about binging on my favourite food item. And that light creamy mushroom sauce with chopped pungent garlic compliments the grilled toast and egg white.

Mediterranean veggies wrap: This will be a heaven for vegetarians as the amount of sliced vegetables enclosed in whole wheat wraps or our humble roti as I would like to call is enough to fill your rumbling belly. The sauce used is hell spicy so watch out.

Spaghetti in spinach garlic sauce: Kudos to them for coming out with a healthy and innovative dish but this can be made better. The spinach sauce tastes way too bitter and mars the slurpy flavour of spaghetti by making it sticky.

Chicken breast in mushroom sauce with sauteed vegetables and brown rice: Perfectly grilled juicy chicken breast which oozes out the sauces while getting torn, cut apart or chewed upon is every foodie’s dream. And when this chicken is paired with soft brown rice with chopped vegetables and sauteed vegetables, my my you have a winner!

Veg Shikampur kebabs: Mellow and fibrous kebabs with a dominant sweetness, the first bite will keep you wondering and the subsequent ones will flabbergasted you with a multitude of flavours. Not to be missed: the hotness of green chillies and garam masala.

Dum Ka Murg: I was honestly surprised by the number of chicken pieces in this dish. Usually restaurants provide only two pieces in a curried dish and that factor takes the excitement away from hogging to cursing.
The chicken is succulent and lavishly drenched in a thick gravy of yogurt, spices and cashew nuts paste. The icing or rather the icings on the cake are the caramelised onions topping this dish thus lending a smoky flavour.

Malabar paratha: Soft and chewy, this goes well with the chicken dish.

Junkyard cafe, Saket

So I finally visit this junkyard themed cafe in the prime location behind Select City Walk.
This place is specifically meant for those groovy weekends where you can come with your mates and relax with more than a glass of alcohol while listening to the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s chartbusters in the genre of Rock n Roll, R&B, metal and rock.

The ambience does remind you of a typical junkyard but wait till you get your cutlery. The other end of the forks, knives and spoons are shaped in the form of a screwdriver. That is one hell of creativity!

Moving on to food, surprisingly the dishes are innovative and flavourful. Usually such places are more famous for drinks than for food but hey, surprise surprise!

Stuffed grilled chicken breast with spinach and oozy mushroom sauce: A super juicy breast of chicken drenched in creamy mushroom and spinach sauce is appetizing enough but when paired with the likes of grilled vegetables and subtlely flavoured potato mash, oh my my! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Chicken kothe dimsums: The very subtle mixture of minced chicken and onion enveloped in a thin dimsums covering which is pan seared at base will leave you in splits but a slight off taste of lemongrass might be a hindrance. RECOMMENDED

IMG_20180716_202202-01

Tandoori wasabi prawns: The prawns are fresh and for the first time, I tasted creamy tandoori prawns. I could have never imagined the combination of prawns and wasabi working so well but surprisingly, here it did. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Chicken and mushrooms lasagna: Ahhhh, lasagna after so long. The silky lasagna sheets drenched in a well balanced sauce of tomatoes, black pepper and cheese with finely minced chicken and mushroom chunks added for extra zing. Trust me when I say that this one particularly is addictive. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Pan seared fish with fresh basil cream: Well grilled fish fillets topped with a very unusual but appetite sauce is a foodie’s dream come true. Specially when the foodie in question is a fitness freak and counts calories to the brim. RECOMMENDED
